North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Brisbane Lions Preview
The Lions bounced back with a very impressive victory over the Bulldogs last week and they have another great opportunity to close the gap between themselves and Port Adelaide on Saturday.
North Melbourne gave the Dees a bit of a scare early on last Sunday but eventually ran out of steam in their 57-point loss.
The Roos picked up another handful of injuries along the way, while the Lions are sweating on the scans of Charlie Cameron’s knee.
Both sides are well-rested but it’s nearly impossible to fade the Lions in this spot.
Chris Fagan’s side won both of their meetings over the Roos last year and they should have no trouble extending that record if the Lions can dominate the clearances like they did last week against the Bulldogs.
With a big game ahead in Round 13 against St Kilda, the Lions should sense the importance of a win to cement themselves in the top four.
